Kelly Clarkson announced that she is pregnant with her second child with husband Brandon Blackstock during a tearful performance in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, and it has us intensely feeling some type of way.

This is exciting, because like her covers of other artists' music, and pretty much every other aspect of life, Clarkson is totally killing it at being a mom so far with 1-year-old daughter River Rose. Here are 19 of Kelly's cutest moments as a mom.

"I've accomplished a lot, but I guess the biggest success I want is that whenever I die people will say, 'She was so successful as a mother, and as a wife.' That’s kind of my big goal," she told People magazine in February. "I never thought I was going to be a mom, so it's very much changed my world in the most awesome way."

3. When she let River take the wheel.

Then she wished a Happy Mother's Day to "every single mama on the planet," writing, "You're beautiful! You're inspiring! And you create the future!! What the hell, that's so amazing?!"
